OnePlus is going to launch not one, but three new phones under its flagship this year. While the OnePlus 7 is expected to be one of the new phones launched, it is not going to be the endgame. The phone Company is also going to launch the OnePlus 7 Pro, a phone loaded with features. Before OnePlus makes an official announcement about the launch date on the 23rd of April, here is taking a look at what to expect from the OnePlus 7 Pro:
1. A dual curved screen
The OnePlus 7 Pro is rumoured to come with a dual curved screen, a feature which no other OnePlus phone has so far. While the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Huawei P30 Pro have a similar design, this new OnePlus 7 Pro is likely to offer a better screen to body ratio. Furthermore, the OnePlus 7 Pro will also get rid of the notch in the front and is going to come with a pop up selfie camera module.
2. The battery life
The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to come with a battery life of 4,000 mAh and 30W Warp Charging Support. However, while the charging speed is going to be faster than before, the OnePlus 7 Pro will not come with wireless charging support. Other smartphone companies are providing this feature and the fact OnePlus 7 Pro doesn’t come with this feature may be a slightly negative factor.
3. Display (Include the display specifications)
The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to come with a display which was not seen in other OnePlus phones. With a 6.7 inch display, the new OnePlus comes with Quad HD+ resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Furthermore, the new phone will come with an embedded fingerprint sensor. With 90Hz, the new screen is going to make the new phone super smooth and very crisp. The high refresh rate will be a blessing for those who love playing games on their phones. From switching between screens to swiping through applications, every feature is smoother and faster on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
4. 5G Network
The OnePlus 7 Pro is going to be the first in the OnePlus series to be compatible with the 5G network. Apart from this, the OnePlus 7 Pro is also going to be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB RAM. While the Company hasn’t made a lot of noise about OnePlus 7 Pro and the 5G network, this feature makes waiting for the phone all the more harder.
5. Price and availability
Because of all the features and the amount of money invested into the OnePlus 7 Pro screen, rumours are, the new OnePlus phone is going to be extremely expensive. While the OnePlus 7 Pro may be priced at a higher rate than its previous phones, it is still not as highly priced as the latest Samsung or Huawei phones.
With the launch date being announced this evening, the wait for this new phone gets harder. If you think we missed out any other specifications or features, comment and let us know!
Facebook Finally Launches Messenger Rooms Which Accommodates 50 People And Unlimited Video Calls
The lockdown and quarantine measures implemented in multiple countries meant that people could not commute to work or go outside for social gatherings. This scenario hugely benefited video calling and conferencing platforms and applications. Zoom, Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts and Houseparty have seen a phenomenal spike in daily active users. Facebook has joined the club by finally upgrading its messenger capabilities.
Facebook Messenger is a chatting and video calling application developed by Facebook. Facebook is finally introducing a new feature in messenger named Messenger Rooms. The free feature will allow Facebook and Messenger users to create group video calls of up to 50 people, contrary to the eight people limit available currently. The Messenger Room does not require a Facebook account and works similar to the Zoom meeting rooms. Participants can join the room by clicking on a link.
The rooms do not have any time limit which lets people converse indefinitely. There are a slew of other features like augmented reality filters, normal filters, virtual masks and a feature to lock the rooms. Facebook also announced that it is doubling WhatsApp’s video call person limit from four to eight people as well. However the Messenger Rooms feature is not immediately available and Facebook will roll the feature out slowly in all the regions it operates.
In a company blog post,Facebook said that 700 million accounts participate in calls everyday between Facebook and WhatsApp. Once Facebook announced this news, shares of the video calling company Zoom fell down by 5%.
Star Wars And Coca Cola Singapore Launch Limited Edition World’s First Electronic Coke Bottles
Star Wars over the years has managed to gather a cult following which stretches across generations. Star Wars is one of the biggest and the most famous film franchises to have ever been created. The latest trilogy in the Star Wars is referred to as the Skywalker Saga and the final movie of the trilogy, The Rise Of Skywalker released last year. Movie franchises have been known to rely on merchandising as part of their promotional strategies and the Star Wars franchise partnered up with Coca Cola to create a unique and one of its kind merchandise. The output of this partnership is very unique and the world’s first electronic coke bottle.
Coca-Cola Singapore harnessed the flexibility of Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays to wrap special-edition sugar-free Coke bottles with light-up, glowing lightsabers wielded by the Star Wars characters, Rey and Kylo Ren.
These bottles are part of a limited edition batch and the only way to obtain one of them is by answering a riddle which is revealed on Facebook and Instagram. Answering these riddles will reveal locations near the 7-Eleven stores around Singapore where one can obtain a special pass. This special pass can be redeemed to purchase the limited edition bottle. These bottles have a touch sensor and squeezing the bottle will light up the lightsabers of Kylo Ren and Rey. Each OLED on the bottle can light up to 500 times.
There are only 8000 of these bottles available making these collectibles very rare. Some of these bottles are sold on ebay for as much as $ 800 which is a high premium.
It will be interesting to see how this OLED technology will be incorporated and it is safe to say that we would be seeing more products which use OLEDs on their packaging in the future. Coca Cola is always at the forefront of innovation and these electronic coke bottles are a perfect example.
‘May the force be with you’ should you set out to find one of these rare collectibles!
